Inlays/Onlays

inlaysonlaysInlays and onlays are often referred to as partial crowns. They use the existing tooth as a base and fit the inlay or only onto the tooth. This is done to strengthen the tooth, restore its shape, and prevent further damage. An inlay is done when there is no damage to the cusps of the tooth and the inlay can be placed right on the tooth. An inlay is used when the damage is a little more extensive.

The decayed area of the tooth is first removed during the procedure. A laser image is taken of the tooth receiving the inlay or onlay. This image is transmitted to the missing machine in our offices. When completed the inlay or onlay will be placed into your mouth and set with cement. Your tooth will look natural and you or anyone else won’t be able to tell the difference.
